Class History 

In the city of Gainesville, Fla., on a September morning in the year of 
our Lord one thousand nine hundred and four, might have been witnessed 
a great commotion and some confusion, in the several homes of five wee 
tots, as iheir respective mothers tidied them in preparation for their initial 
school daj r . It was on that day the aforesaid wee tots were destined to 
embark on the good ship known as the "G. H. S." for a more or less turbu- 
lent voyage of eight months in each of the next succeeding twelve years. 
In a few minutes after the tidying process had been completed to the emi- 
nent satisfaction of the mothers, ihe five tots might have been seen thread 
ing their way, radiant and expectant, to the dock where lay moored the ship 
that was to take them out for their first cruise on the "Sea of Knowledge." 

The '16 class chronicler was already aboard ship, having been commis- 
sioned to keep an accurate account of the salient features of the twelve 
years' voyage. At the purser's office the five tots were registered as, 
Albert Dorman, Irma Vidal, Sophia Burkhim, Ella Taylor, and Sara Mer- 
chant, constituting the nucleus of the class of '16. 

With the "All ashore" warning from the captain, Miss Mabel Sanchez, 
we were off, the great white ship gliding gracefully through the waters, 
with the purple and white flag floating proudly from the flag pole, and the 
green and gold class banner flying lightly from the fore-mast head. 

After a two days' cruise in the placid waters immediately contiguous to 
shore, we were hailed and acquainted with the fact that two more tots de- 
sired to join us, which we gladly acceded to, and received on board — Caro- 
line Steckert and Allan Moseley — who with the original five, composed 
the "charter members" of the class of '16. 

After an uneventful, but not unpleasant, voyage of two years on the 
"Sea of School-life," we set sail on the third lap of the Primary course, hav- 
ing taken on board the eighth member of our class=Clarence O'Neill — 
which constituted our membership for the entire Primary voyage. 

When ready to set sail on the first cruise in the "Intermediate Sea," we 
had added one more golden star of incomparable brilliancy to our green 
and gold banner, this star representing Clarissa Rolfs, who joined us here 
for the first voyage. 

We were augmented by Hart Stringfellow and Laurie Colson on our fifth 
voyage, which was the last lap of the Intermediate course. 

The first voyage on the "Grammar School Sea" was begun under auspi- 
cious conditions. We had admitted to our ranks Robert Swanson, Leona 
Thigpen, and Alberta Murphree, whose stars of gold, when added to our 
banner, increased the number to fourteen as bright and scintillating stars as 
ever adorned the flag of a "Grammar School Ship." 

Our seventh year, the second of the Grammar School course, was al- 
most completed when our wireless operator, Hart, picked up an "S. O. S." 
call. We hastened to the rescue and found Mabel McDonald aboard a 
stranded ship. We gladly received her to our circle, conferring upon her 
all the rights and privileges of the older members of the class. After this, 
the voyage was completed without any untoward incidents.

Vha Jilachuan 



The last year's voyage in "Grammar School Sea" was enlivened by the 
addition of Carl Perry, whose star sheds effulgent rays over the field of 
athletics. 

We now approach the port, after completing the third division of our 
journey, where our ship was to go in dry dock for remodeling and enlarg- 
ing before pushing its prow across the bar into the stormy waters of the 
"High School Sea." 

We now gathered at the wharf for our first year's cruise in the "High 
School Sea," and were overjoyed to note the addition of several new 
members. 

Our ship was a picture, large, commodious, and spick and span, in a 
new coat of white. We were a happy crowd, our class was almost com- 
plete, the feeling of good fellowship was irrepressible, and we anticipated 
the most enjoyable voyage of any that had gone before; nor did after events 
prove disappointing, for with the acquisition of Irene Holder, Durand 
Tucker, Helen Schafer, Minnie Little and Clarence Lyman, there was as 
jolly and companionable a bunch as ever gathered together on a school 
ship. As our gaily bedecked "G. H. S." pushed her shapely prow through 
the waters of the lower bay the Everglades passed in review, recalling to 
our minds the land sales of that now famous region. We wondered at 
sight of it, if its surface was solid by liquid or square measure — there having 
been a light shower the night before, leaving nothing visible but a few tus- 
sock islands. 

The tenth year's voyage was of mediocre interest, there being only 
one addition in the person of Audrey Cheves. 

The only incident worthy of mention during the next year was the 
"spiking" of the "Punch" at the Junior reception — although accused of being 
the miscreants, the Juniors were not guilty. 

We now approach the closing scenes of our twelve years of arduous, 
but not unenjoyable, voyages, and will henceforth speak of the present 
rather than the past. Everybody on board is busy with his especial duties 
assigned by our commodore, Miss Mary Woodbery, who has steered us un- 
erringly clear of the shoals of failure for the past two years. 

After a voyage far out into the sea of "Elusive Knowledge," we are 
now headed for port under forced draft, in order to reach the final goal by 
the 19th of May, at which time we will depart from the dear old "G. H. S." 
with saddened tbough hopeful hearts, leaving the ever-to-be-cherished pur- 
ple and white flag, floating at the masthead, but taking with us our own 
beloved banner of green and gold, whose quota of twenty-three stars was 
made complete by the addition of Edward Connor to our class, in our 
senior year. 

Out of our stars we have moulded our class motto — 

"Non Sholae Sed Vitae." 

Audrey Cheves.

Prophecy 

Time: May, nineteen hundred and guess again. 

Place: Grand Central Station, New York City. 

"Hello, Old Boy, how is the world? And Audrey? That's good, and 
how are all the little ones? Are you still in the real estate business? Twenty 
million gallons last week — that's fine! Have you heard from Ed Connor 
lately? Coaching the girls at Vandy — that's not so worse. Sophia, did you 
say? Didn't you know she was in grand opera? This is her second season 
in Paris. And where is Carl? What is he doing in St. Augustine? Head 
steward at the Ponce de Leon! He always did like such as that. And you 
say Caroline is an old maid? I know her place must be quaint, but I would 
never have thought that of her. I see by the papers that Hart has just re- 
ceived his Ph.D. in Berlin. Oh! no. The war did not bother him at all. Is 
Ella keeping house now? Certainly, a cozy little flat in Jax with the only 
man in the world. Robert has made quite a success. He practically owns 
one of the largest Overland factories in this country. You know how par- 
tial he always was to that particular make. Mabel has charge of one of the 
largest kindergartens in Chicago. Married? Oh, yes, but still happy. 
Allan is working in vaudeville now. Remember how he hated to have to 
move about? Possibly that is the reason he made such a fine ventriloquist. 
I suppose you know Miss Murphree is mistress of one of the grandest man- 
ors in Somersetshire. What is Leona doing now? Graduated — from where? 
Oh! St. Luke's. I suppose she will be in the Red Cross service soon. I re- 
cently learned that Durand has advanced wonderfully in the Southern 
Express Company. President? I really did not know he was quite that far 
up. I saw Irene in Washington last week. She is quite the latest in the 
smart set. Did you read that story of Jack's in last month's Cosmopolitan? 
She writes regularly for magazines now. Minnie has made quite a name 
also, but her specialty is poetry instead of prose. Where is Clarissa, still in 
Florida? Research work? I knew she was quite versed in science, but I 
did not know she ever tried to trace the descent of Florida 'gators. Clar- 
ence O'Neill has a large grocery store in Atlanta, and it is rumored that he 
will run for governor next election. Helen Schafer? She's married. Oh, 
yes, several years ago. Sara is singing in the winter garden here this sea- 
son. She hopes to study in Vienna next year. Irma took the last of her 
holy orders last month and in a few days will receive the everlasting veil 
and robe in the Vatican. Are you taking the southbound train tonight? 
Still living in Palm Beach, I suppose? Me? Yesterday I was appointed 
general manager of the New York Edison Co. Next time you are in town 
drop in the office and I will show you over the plant." 

Albert Dorman, Prophet.

Epic of Senior Class 

Seniors and books I sing who, lured by fame, 

From Freshman year through Soph and Junior came, 

Much tossed in algebra and geometry, 

Attained Athenian realms with amity. 

When they embarked upon the sea of trig, 

On whirls of logarithms was caught their brig, 

Or was upon the shoals of function fooled; 

But Professor Buch gave aid with ancient rules 

And pried it off with Archimedian tools. 

In full sail upon the sea of Senior life, 

Amidst the isles and rocks of pleasure and strife, 

Miss Woodb'ry, greatly fearing a treacherous wind, 

Held fast and firm and steered the rudder's line. 

At last they landed on the longed for shore, 

And marching to the Olympian heights afore 

And peering from the shadows of study deep, 

Espied, enthroned on this impregnable peak, 

The faculty busy making rules severe 

To rob from the greedy Seniors privileges dear. 

Advanced now Clarence to nobly do his part, 

Also his comrades, notably brave Hart: 

And spurred by pride to labors Herculean, 

United they piled Ossa on Pelion, 

Enabling thus the Seniors a twenty-three throng, 

To scale the heights and attach the fortress strong. 

Now climbed Robert beloved by Albert alone, 

With book in hand came Irma upward blown, 

Then Sophia richly attired in purple and green, 

Next blithely skipped joyous Alberta and happy Irene, 

Then Carl and Durand, the football heroes brave, 

And following them Allan, sedate and grave; 

And then in quick succession flitted by 

Leona, Laurie, Ella and Audrey 

With Minnie, Mabel, Caroline and Ed; 

And others still persistently onward sped. 

The brave Clarissa was appointed now 

With Ed, the fierce, to approach the Olympic brow. 

They soon returned wtth heavy scroll in hand 

Which offered to them the eighty per cent plan. 

Despair and gloom now comes o'er the Seniors brave 

When this chance alone is given their rights to save. 

Then up rose Hart in shining armor bright, 

And thus reflected back the faculty's light; 

"Oh Seniors brave, we've nobly done our part; 

Since brains alone are not needed in this mart. 

Let's compromise at once ere it's too late, 

And leave the jolly Juniors to their fate." 

Thus peace and happiness and harmony 

Were made between the Seniors and faculty. 

Minnie Little.

A Student's Utopia 



RULE I. Children must be carried to and 
from school in autos supplied by the coun- 
ty board. 

RULE II. Cages containing monkeys, 
elephants, bears, and other animals of in 
terest must be placed about the grounds for 
increasing the students' zoological knowl- 
edge. 

RULE III. An up-to date recreation park 
must be connected with the school because 
working and repairing the various devices 
for amusement would make "physics" 
easier. 

RULE IV. At least one wireless must be 
connected with the school, whereby all 
foreign news may be obtained more rapidly 
and invitations from our friend William, the 
Kaiser, may be rejected more speedily. 

RULE V. A one-act vaudeville must be 
arranged for chapel each morning in order 
to secure students' interest in school, so 
they will not be obliged to study and sleep 
at that time. 

RULE VI. At recess a dainty salad course 
must be served to students by the faculty. 
(Faculty must be plainly and neatly dressed.) 

RULE VII. Study hall must be furnished 
with Morris chair, footstool, writing desk, 
and waste basket for each student. 

RULE VIII. Girls' desks must be equipped 
with mirrors, paint, powder, hair pins, 
"Nunnally's," "Vogue" and "Elite." 

RULE IX. Boys' desks must be furnished 
with mirrors, cigarettes, pipes, tobacco, 
cigars, "Popular Mechanics" and "Keeping 
in Condition." 

RULE X. Every desk must contain at 
least one deck of cards (for playing soli- 
taire), a couple of newspapers (also the 
"Sun"), "Life," "Cosmopolitan," "Snappy 



Stories," etc., so that students' minds will 
be occupied. 

RULE XI. After dinner minis and chew- 
ing gum must be placed on each desk at the 
beginning of every study period. Various 
drinks may be obtained by ringing for the 
butler. 

RULE XII. Phones must be connected 
with each desk, thus relieving the teachers 
from granting permission to speak. 

RULE XIII. Maids and valets must be 
provided for students, thus eliminating the 
expense of a janitor. 

RULE XIV. An orchestra must be placed 
on the first landing and all corridors must 
be waxed, so that all students may take 
exercise and relieve their weary minds be- 
tween classes. 

RULE XV. All teachers, with the aid of 
the student body, must attend strictly to 
their own affairs. 

RULE XVI. Teachers must by no means 
insult a student by asking him a question he 
does not know. 

RULE XVII. Teachers must speak in 
moderate tones, smilingly impart their 
knowledge, and under no condition be- 
come peeved or speak in harsh tones. 
Doing such would disturb the students' 
thoughts. 

RULE XVIII. Should a study hall after 
school hours be inaugurated, moving pic- 
tures must be supplied to keep the students 
from becoming tired. 

RULE XIX. Students are at all times 
free to leave any class or building unmo- 
lested. 

RULE XX. Every licensed business es- 
tablishment in town must monthly contrib- 
ute ten per cent of all gains to Athletic 
Association.

Laboratory— Physics and Chemistry 

Departments 

The Gainesville High School has a very creditable equipment and each year is being im- 
proved. 

Our Chemistry department has one of the best laboratories in any high school in the state 
and represents an outlay of over five hundred dollars. 

This year, in response to the popular demand, a Domestic Science department has been 
added. Miss McQuarrie efficiently presides over the culinary efforts of the girls. 

The Art department, of which Mrs. Lyde Pearce has charge, is not located in the school 
buildings because of lack of room. 

Miss Margaret Merchant conducts the Music department, giving lessons in both vocal and 
instrumental music. 

Under the direction of Mrs. Roux the Expression department is doing excellent work. 

The Athletic Association store deserves special mention. Here we purchase various in- 
digestible edibles and aid a worthy cause at the same time. 

Provision has been made for training the aesthetic sense and for the encouragement of 
athletics. For the former we have extensive grounds, and beautiful pictures presented by the 
S. I. A. ladies; and for athletics, tennis and basketball courts, a track, and a baseball and 
football field. 

This year a Normal department was added for the benefit of those who wish to teach.

Gainesville Needs a More Efficient 
Police Force 

It is very evident from present indications that Gainesville needs a 
more efficient police force. At present, there are usually two officers, some- 
times only one, on duty from 6 p. m. until midnight. From midnight until 
6 a. m. there is only one officer on duty. During the day there are two or 
three scattered around under the shade trees, discussing politics, but what 
do we need with cops in the daytime except in case of a fight or a viola- 
tion of the traffic laws? In case of a fight they never get to it until every- 
thing is over unless it happens within a block of where they are. At night 
a person familiar with the town could look around the square, spot the 
two cops on duty, then go to some other part of town and do almost any- 
thing before those guardians of the peace knew anything about their 
actions. 

Suppose a burglar breaks into your house, what will you do? If you 
have a phone you could phone the night watchman at some livery stable 
or one of the open-all-night restaurants and ask them to send some one for 
your legal protector. Perhaps he could be found, for more than likely he 
would have betaken himself to dreamland. In the meantime your burglar 
could have called one of the numerous jitney buses and made his escape. 
Of course you might turn in the fire alarm, but then if the marauder is not 
caught you stand a fair chance of being pinched for sending in a false 
alarm. In other words, if your visitor is to be punished you must hold 
him up yourself; wait until daylight to phone the chief of police; wait for 
him to get up, dress and eat breakfast; and then carry your prisoner to him 
and turn him over to the mighty cop, with a smile on your face. 

To be brief, every one must be his own policeman, except those boys 
who will ride their bicvcles on the sidewalk. That is where the paid cops 
"shine."

All games were played on the home field. 

About two weeks before school opened the prospective members of 
the football squad met Prof. Buchholz for preliminary practice. We opened 
our season on October 7 with the Gainesville Town Team. This victory 
was influential in developing a great deal of our raw material. We met the 
strong second team from the University of Florida on October 9 and No- 
vember 20. In the first of these two fiercely contested games the Scrubs 
made the only score in the last minute of play. In the second game Hob- 
son Cone made a beautiful touchdown from the twenty-five-yard line for 
G. H. S. in the first half. After the intermission our opponents came back 
full of pep and Terry's heavy line charges netted them their only touch- 
down. Both sides failed to kick goal. 

On October 23, Duval, the '14'15 champions, came down to defend 
their title. The teams were very evenly matched and most of the playing 
was in neutral territory. Clarence O'Neill made our touchdown in the 
second quarter and Durand Tucker kicked goal. In the last quarter Duval 
scored by a series of very clever forward passes. This tie game gave our 
boj'S a little too much confidence, and as a result we did not show up as 
well as we expected in the game with Plant City. 

Our last and most important game was on December 11 with Braden- 
town, for the state championship. Owing to the irdisposition of several of 
our best players, and the consequential weakening of the team, the South 
Florida boys, with their superior weight, wrested the state championship 
from us. They scored a touchdown and kicked goal in the second quarter 
and after several vain attempts to carry the ball over from our two-yard 
line, in the last few minutes of play, succeeded in scoring a field goal. 

As a whole our season was very satisfactory, due to the faithful and 
efficient coaching of Joe Swanson and Prof. Buchholz, the loyalty of the 
second team, and the hard work of the entire squad.

The Boys' Basketball Schedule for 1915-16 

Jan. 7th. Trenton High SchoollO G. H. S. 50 

Jan. 14th. Daytona High School 37 G. H. S. 21 

Jan. 22nd. Starke High School 3 G H. S. 57

Jan. 29th. Palatka High School 17 G. H. S. 41 

Feb. 12th. Palatka High School 8 _ G. H. S. 53 

On account of the long football season, basketball practice did not start 
until the Christmas holidays. We secured Joe Swanson to coach us, how- 
ever, and, under his able training, were ready to begin the season when the 
holidays were over. 

The first game was with Trenton High School, on January 7th. We 
won from them 50 to 10, on their court. 

The next Friday we played the Daytona High School. Owing to the 
long trip, which was made in Fords, we were not in the best of trim when 
the game was called that evening. Daytona had a very strong team, hav- 
ing three men over six feet tall. This was our hardest game, Daytona 
winning 37 to 21. 

We played Starke on the following Saturday, winning 58 to 3. This 
was Starke's first year in basketball, consequently their team was not very 
strong. 

Our next game was with our old rivals, the Florida Scrubs. This was 
our first game on the home court, and should have been the last, judging 
by the gate receipts of 75 cents. The Scrubs were not so successful in 
basketball as they had been in football, for we won by the score of 54 to 22. 

The next day, which was January 29th, we went to Palatka, where we 
were very hospitably entertained. The game that night was played on a 
small court in the (Palatka) Athletic (Club) Gymnasium, and was about the 
fastest game of the season. The Palatka boys were fast, but not very ac- 
curate, and we succeeded in securing 41 points to their 17. 

The last game of the season was played here on February 12th. It was 
a return game with Palatka. Their team was greatly weakened by the 
absence of their regular center, while our team work was much improved 
and we were playing on our home court. Hence the final score was 53 to 
8 in our favor. 

The gate receipts for this game were $4.25 and expenses were about 
$25.00. On account of the lack of support from the town and school, we 
were obliged to bring our season to a close. 

Billie Tucker was elected captain, and Orion Wells manager, for the 
1916-17 season.

Fred Stringfellow and Carl Perry. Fred won first place in the 440-yard dash, time, 56 sec- 
onds; third place in the 100-yard dash; and fourth place in the 220-yard dash. Carl won first 
in the shot put, distance 37 feet .7 inches. G. H. S. took fourth place with 13 points, while

The Girls' Basketball Team began regular practice about two weeks 
after the opening of school, under the able direction of Miss Jarrell. The 
season opened with the first of the two games with Ocala "Wildcats." 
The O. H. S. girls certainly lived up to their title. Both games went to 
them by a small margin. 

The two games with Columbia College were both easy victories for 
us, but Duval gave us a close game both times. 

The strong Stetson team defeated us both at home and at DeLand, but 
not as badly in the latter game as in the former. 

The Alachua games were also easy victories, the highest score being 
made on our home court, however. 

We defeated the Mcintosh team with no trouble, as we did the ma- 
jority of our opponents, our only unfortunate games being with the 
"Wildcats." 

The team this year is the best we have ever had. It not only had 
speed and accuracy, but that one vital asset, "pep." There was no remark- 
able individual starring, the most prominent characteristics being the per- 
fect team work and cooperation.

In discussing the life of Hawthorne, it was remarked that he spent twelve years in soli-

class collegiate advantages to High School graduates than

surpassed. Its buildings and equipment thoroughly ample. 
Its faculty one of the best in the South. Its student body one 
of die choicest in America. Its social life simple, inex- 
pensive, but delightful.

Southern Methodist church ranked by the Board of Educa- 
tion on perfect equality with the best colleges for men. Its 
degrees are fully recognized by the leading universities.
